You Make Me Smile

As an independent charity we rely greatly on the income from our shops to keep our services running, and our retail volunteers are such a huge part of this. We currently have a variety of retail volunteer opportunities across East Sussex. Would you like to join one of our brilliant retail teams and help us make East Sussex smile?

Please Be Aware...

It has come to our attention that there is a possible scam with regards to false work vacancies being posted on external sites for Age UK East Sussex. We are worried that this is a scam to gain personal details from people. Please be careful when applying for roles with us via external sites and check that the job vacancy is real by visiting our job vacancies page.

Living with Covid-19

The government has removed the remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19.
Make sure you know what you should do to protect yourself and those around you.

Our Shops

Age UK East Sussex has six charity shops and two furniture stores, so why not pop by to your local shop to find a bargain.
Or if you want to shop online from the comfort of your own home, why not visit our Ebay shop.
We would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support, the generous donations made by our local communities, and the support of our amazing volunteers. Without you all we wouldn't be able to carry out our vital work in making East Sussex a great place to grow older.
